Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is reportedly irritated with the failure of Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial to score 'scruffy goals' for Manchester United this season.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has reportedly been left irritated by the failure of Marcus Rashford and Anthony Martial to score 'scruffy goals' for Manchester United so far this season.

The Red Devils came under severe pressure following a paltry 1-1 draw with Southampton last weekend which has left them without a win in three games.

While Martial was injured for the game, Rashford attracted plenty of criticism for being unable to capitalise on numerous balls into the box as Southampton successfully closed out the final 20 minutes with 10 men after Kevin Danso was sent off.

According to The Athletic, the United boss is becoming increasingly irritated at the duo's failure to snuff out scruffy goals in the box.

Solskjaer has spoken publicly on several occasions about how the young pair need to add a poacher instinct to their game in order to become complete strikers.

The report also states that the Norwegian has been running several drills in training whereby he recreates game scenarios which allow for Rashford and Martial to score more poachers' goals.
